    We all know it's coming. Someone who was brave enough to NOT register their "Assault" Weapon here in Commieneticut is going to be the first to be arrested and made an example of. Are we going to stand by and let him loose all his life savings, his job, (he'll be a felon) and probably everything he owns trying to defend himself in court?????
    If we do we'll be next!!!
    I beg EVERYONE, please right now get at least a $10 bill and put it in an envelope and be ready to SEND IT TO HIM, (Do you think the NRA will help him? I doubt it.) the first guy that gets screwed by this horrible law. He will need the best defense he can get to save him from the tyranny!
    A few bucks will be well spent from every gun owner to fight this. $10 is less than a box of bullets! WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING! Can you imagine the news media coverage if thousands of gun owners send him $10??? It would be the best thing that could happen.
    I hope the first guy is NOT YOU!!!

    I have set aside $100.00 to donate to the cause as soon as it becomes needed and I am reasonably sure it's not a scam. I have been watching http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/ for his take on this subject. Personally I hope that they pull a Colorado and recall all the Progressives responsible for this piece of nastiness.

    Connecticut is beyond repair. For a state that is among the original 13, and a state that has had a multitude of firearms manufacturers, it is a pitiful state of affairs.

    Depends. I would have to know a little more about this individual first.

    Did he/she vote for Obama, if so screw em.

    Did he/she vote for Gov. Malloy, if so screw em.

    Did he'she vote third party Spoiler, if so screw em.

    Did he/she stay home on election day just to teach those Wascally Wepublicans a lesson, if so screw em.

    Did he/she vote for any Democrat in the last 10 years, if so screw em.

    Just so you and your Anti-NRA crowd are aware, read this. If can't take the time to read it all, it basically says ,
    The NRA is currently backing a lawsuit, Shew v. Malloy, to challenge the constitutionality of several provisions of the law, including its expanded bans on semiautomatic firearms and its restrictions on magazine capacity. Some have wondered why the NRA has not appeared as a named plaintiff in the suit. Simply put, experience has often shown that NRA is more effective in lending its expertise and resources, rather than its name, to litigation.

    So screw your Anti-NRA BS as you have No clue how hard the NRA is fighting and how much $Money$ they are spending in CT.

    You're right. I don't know how much the NRA is spending in CT. CT is the front line in the battle, flanked by NY and RI. I'm not anti NRA. I just don't think they are doing as much as they could. They are better than nothing though. I do realize that without them we would have lost the fight a long time ago.
    My post was to try to give an idea on how each gun owner could have some influence and input when it hits the fan to try to win this battle. Not bash the NRA.

    my guess is the first person getting arrested in CT will be someone who flaunts / pushes it too far. someone who is out looking for attention, or to BE that test case. for such a person, my $10 stays in my wallet......

    other example would be the guy getting arrested for other weapons charges (stolen weapons sales/possession for example, dealing drugs, etc) and because he also has 30 round mags or an unregistered AR he gets a separate charge for that

    again, $10 stays in my wallet......

    The NRA has picked a winnable case. Not only does the person involved with the test case have to be innocent, they have to have a clean record. The person for the test case has to be a good listener, not a loose cannon. The NRA can find this person a lot better than we can.

    The NRA could spend it's entire budget on fighting gun control in CT, NJ, and NY and it would make little or no difference. Gun rights do not resonate with most voters in those states.

    The NRA won in Washington DC. I really doubt those people care about gun rights either. See Washington DC vs Heller.

    Good point!

    It's also important for others to understand that the NRA does not do battle on an "individual" case by case basis. They do not have the funds or the resources to fight and defend each and every individual's battle. They fight the Law itself and those that passed these laws. They do what they can to keep individuals from being arrested and prosecuted by fighting these Laws, but they cannot defend each individual caught up in this mess.

    IMO, asking/demanding the NRA, "Do More", "Spend More", etc in CT is a-kin to asking an insurance company to pay for your home after it burns down even though you did not have insurance.

    The citizens of CT have voted overwhelmingly (70%) Obama and his regime. There are over a million+ gun owners in CT, but less than a handful are NRA Members. Now that their tit is in a wringer the citizens of CT and guys like ALS-15 are running around in circles demanding the NRA come to the Rescue even though they have contributed zilch, zero, nitch to the NRA and it's cause.

    ...and when it's all said and done and the NRA gets these CT laws overturned at great financial expense these same individuals that demanded NRA help will still not become a member and will continue to vote Democrat.

    and if more gun owners who don't belong to the NRA would join, it would give them more money to fight more unjust gun laws.

    i have little sympathy for someone who owns guns and isn't an NRA member complaining about how draconian the gun laws, restrictions and bans are.

    Correct.

    Then we have guys like ALS-15 asking gun owners to spend $10 in defense of One Man which will do little to nothing on the National Level, but when asked to send $money$ to the NRA, ya get the same old-same old, "they could/should do this and could/should do that and could/should do more so I'm not going to waste my money on the NRA.

    Then they ***** and piss and moan when they do not see the NRA on the front lines fighting for them, even though they have contributed dog Sheet to the real cause.

    that pretty much mirrors my thoughts as well. i'll send the $10 to the NRA so they can fight that battle for everyone, at the state level, rather than one person.

    I guess I'm wrong in wanting to help someone who has his 2nd amendment rights taken away. I'm not talking about criminals that are caught up in this either. By the way I've sent quite as bit more than just membership dues to the NRA. I'm surprised with the response this thread has brought.

    You shouldn't be.

    When you start out your thread with this,

    (Do you think the NRA will help him? I doubt it.)

    Without any clue how much the NRA is already $spending$ and helping, you post this kind of crap.

    I'm surprised more members here didn't tear you a new one.

    BTW, I don't buy this for one second.

    By the way I've sent quite as bit more than just membership dues to the NRA.

    If you were truly involved, you would have already been aware of what and how much $Money$ the NRA has contributed to the CT situation.

    you want to really help CT with their unjust gun laws? get more people involved with the NRA or any major gun rights association for that matter. the more paying members the NRA has the stronger they will be.

    and FYI, the first person who gets popped on these unjust gun laws that isn't a member of the NRA or something similiar, i promise you, i won't have much sympathy for his situation. if he is, then he will have my full support in spirit at least, because he had faith in someone who is fighting the battle for our rights.and by my being an NRA member, i am, in a sense, sending him money to fight the battle.

    The NRA will most definitely help him. This isn't the same NRA that let the 94 ban happen. The NRA has changed since then and is fighting harder than we can imagine.

    As I understand it, SAF was the lead on Heller. Not sure NRA did anything.

    In a critical MI case, crickets were heard from the NRA. Grass Roots won the case at the appellate level and state supreme court refused to hear the case.

    I'm readdressing my NRA membership.
